18 Ways To Procrastinate: A Series

Start on a project early? Yeah, right.

Do you have an assignment due at 11:59 P.M. tonight? Do you have a huge test you're just not mentally ready to prepare for yet? Most importantly, are you looking to procrastinate until the very last second? Then this list is for you!

1. Check all of your social media apps. Twice.

2. Write down everything you have to do for the week in your planner, and carry over anything that didn’t get done the previous week.

3. Facetime your friends and distract them from their homework.

4. Find your favorite picture and paint it.

5. Learn a new song on an instrument.

6. If you can’t play an instrument, try to learn all the words to a song you’ve only heard a couple of times.

7. Start on your homework for other classes. Work on it for ten minutes and then do something not school-related.

8. Online shop for a dress for your formal that is two months away.

9. Start making a Christmas wish list for your parents (because we know what we want better than them at this point).

10. Watch an obsessive amount of Facebook cooking videos.

11. Try a new recipe from a Facebook cooking video.

12. Look up what concerts are coming to a town near you and plan a trip to go.

13. Start planning your Spring Break five months in advance.

14. Write in a journal, and if you don’t have one, go out and buy one.

15. Try on a bunch of outfits in your closet and take a picture of them for future reference.

16. Get a snack.

17. If all you have in your pantry is stale Cheerios and a brown, over-ripe banana, go grocery shopping.

18. Last but not least, start panicking. Because if you’ve done everything on the list, then you probably haven’t left yourself enough time to write your essay.

To The Grandmothers Who Made Us The Women We Are Today

Sincerely, the loving granddaughters.

The relationship between a grandmother and her granddaughter is something so uniquely special and something to be treasured forever.

Your grandma loves you like you are her own daughter and adores you no matter what. She is the first person you run to when you have a problem with your parents and she never fails to grace you with the most comforting advice.

She may be guilty of spoiling you rotten but still makes sure to stress the importance of being thankful and kind.

Your grandma has most likely lived through every obstacle that you are experiencing now as a young adult and always knows just exactly what to say.

She grew up in another generation where things were probably much harder for young women than they are today.

She is a walking example of perseverance, strength, and grace who you aim to be like someday.

Your grandma teaches you the lessons she had to learn the hard way because she does not want you to make the same mistakes she did when she was growing up.

Her hugs never fail to warm your heart, her smile never fails to make you smile, and her laugh never fails to brighten your day.

She inspires you to be the best version of yourself that you can be.

You only hope that one day you can be the mother and grandmother she was to you.

A piece of girl’s heart will forever belong to her grandma that no one could ever replace.

She is the matriarch of your family and is the glue that holds you all together.

Grandmothers play such an important role in helping their granddaughters to grow into strong, intelligent, kind women.

She teaches you how to love and how to forgive.

Without the unconditional love of your grandma, you would not be the woman you are today.

To all of the grandmothers out there, thank you for being you.

Poetry On The Odyssey: You Don't Control Me

If I could speak to my anxiety, here is what I'd say.



You have controlled my life for way too long.

My constant fears hold me back from so many things I want to be able to do.

Your presence makes me a person I don't want to be.

You make me feel scared and alone when I know that I am not alone.

You don't control me.

I am not free to be myself when you are around.

There is no use for you, and you should be ashamed for making me feel sick, nervous, fearful, not good enough.

You have been a little monster, harboring inside of me for my whole life.

Whispering "You can't do that" in my ear when I dare to get out of my comfort zone.

You don't control me.

I am fully capable of doing great things and living without you.

I have a wonderful support system of people who believe in me and help me crush you every day as you deserve.

I will be brave, be bold, enjoy life more.

This is me saying "Sayonara Anxiety."

You don't control me.

I am going to take my life back from your filthy grip.

I am going to live the life I've dreamt of.

I am going to be adventurous and take risks.

I am going to be myself.

You don't control me.
